Match 19: CSK vs RCB

Chennai Super Kings (CSK) made a successful victory over the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the Match 19 of the VIVO Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Sunday.

The match was truly a noteworthy one with Jadeja smashing 62 off 28 deliveries including 37 runs off the final over and then picked 3/13 with the ball, along with a direct hit as CSK, after scoring 191/4, restricted RCB to 122/9 to seal a 69-run win. Virat Kohli and Devdutt Padikkal on the other hand made a very confident start. 

Further, Imran Tahir joined the wicket-taking party as he dismissed Harshal Patel and Navdeep Saini and RCB were reduced to 94-8 at the end of 14 overs. While the leg-spinner disturbed the timber to dismiss Patel, Saini edged it to Raina.

The two new batsmen, Jadeja and Ambati Rayudu counter-attacked and made a quick partnership with RCB misfielding on a number of occasions. Jadeja hit two fours while Rayudu hit one out of the ground in the 16th over by Jamieson, who conceded 17 runs. Siraj conceded only 6 runs in the next over and bowled really well. Harshal dismissed Rayudu, who tried to clear the boundary.

Finally, Jadeja finished off excellently well, smashing 37 runs off the final over and hitting five sixes and one four as CSK finished the innings with a commanding total of 191/4, making a win.
